Mr. Ha stated that after graduating, he worked as a business operations manager at the company and is now pursuing a Master of Business Administration at Ba Ria – Vung Tau University.

During the interaction with students, the students were really excited to ask the speakers numerous questions. The mood was vibrant, and the guests actively addressed the students’ questions.
A very interesting question from a Business Administration student to Mr. Duong Huu Hieu with the following content is “You are in charge of a large number of people; so what should you do to effectively manage a large number of employees? And is the business administration industry wide?”. According to Mr. Hieu, human resource management is our capacity to understand who we utilize. The importance of truthfulness cannot be overstated. To begin, we must do or self-master in order to know how to function in order to have observation skills, therefore, we should gather experiences such as being able to start our own businesses, etc. in order to collide with reality.

Many law students may indeed be concerned about reading and memorizing a large amount of documents. As a response, a student approached Lawyer Do Thanh Trung and stated, “I’m really passionate about the law profession, but it has too many documents, therefore I’d would like to ask if there are any tips to memorize the documents?”. Mr. Trung shared with students that before heading to court, we must conduct research, discover law documents that govern the sector, and understand the fundamentals of the law rather than reading word for word. Also, for a criminal trial, we need to prepare arguments to determine whether or not there is a violation, however, for a civil case, we must prepare in advance based on the unique situation. We must check up reading comprehension skills under the regulation of the law branch.

Several additional questions about the profession were answered by the guests. When it was 9 p.m. and the students were still engaging in huge numbers, several of them revealed that even though they were heading out, they tried to go online by phone since they didn’t want to miss this beneficial dialogue. The visitors, in particular, remained eager to address such concerns. The visitors’ and students’ enthusiasm is the most important element that stays and also indicates the meeting’s success.
Faculty leaders and lecturers hope to cross the gap between theory and practice, bring reality closer to students so that they can learn more about the sector and stay on track throughout years in the university.
